How to Challenge Your Bromley PCN Without a Solicitor

How many times have you found yourself ? It can be frustrating to get parking tickets no matter where you're travelling. But what if you feel the Bromley PCN is unfounded? Maybe there is confusing signage or no signage at all. And now you're stuck with a parking ticket and fine.

Bromley Penalty Charge Notices serve as a citation to vehicle operators who didn't follow parking directions or indicated timelines. And if you're not very careful about how you respond, you could open yourself up to additional fines and penalties. So, how should you go about officially handling your Bromley PCN?

It can be challenging even to figure out how to pay your Bromley PCN fine. But when you want to challenge or appeal your citation, it's even more confusing. Without a solicitor, how can everyday citizens go about disputing the parking ticket? Lucky for you, you're about to learn the revolutionary solution with a DoNotPay product designed to help you challenge and beat your Bromley PCN without a solicitor.

You Have a Bromley PCN in Hand; Now What?

The London Borough of Bromley has a Parking Department responsible for handling any citations. A parking violation isn't in itself all that serious and is a civil offence, not a criminal one.

However, pay close attention to the instructions. Your Bromley PCN comes with timelines for payment and outlines your next steps. It's also important to know how your Bromley PCN was issued.

  1. In-Person Officer

This refers to a parking contravention with PCN issued in person by a civil enforcement officer.

  1. As a Result of Camera Footage

This refers to a bus lane contravention with PCN issued by post following CCTV evidence.

  1. Unable to Serve On-Street

This refers to a parking contravention with PCN issued by post, following CCTV evidence or a civil enforcement officer is unable to serve the PCN on-street.

Reasons You Might Challenge a Bromley PCN

Even if you disagree with the Bromley PCN and parking ticket, you might be wondering if it's worth it to contest it. Yes. If you feel, for any reason at all, that your citation was unfounded or incorrectly issued, you have every right to appeal. And the London Borough of Bromley understands this process is necessary, which is why officials have outlined a process for challenging a PCN.

Here are some other reasons to consider appealing your Bromley PCN:

  • It's free to do so
  • Court proceedings are prohibited during the appeal process
  • DoNotPay can help you challenge your citation in under 120 seconds

How to Go About Challenging Your Bromley PCN Fine?

According to the London Borough of Bromley's website regarding the appeals process for a Bromley PCN, officials state openly their understanding of how "stressful" and "time-consuming" an appeal can be. They have taken steps to make the process easier, providing guidance for both making a challenge and formal representations online.

  1. Start by entering your PNC number and vehicle registration number.
  2. Review the contravention details, and any photographic evidence presented.
  3. Choose to either "Pay" or "Submit a Challenge."

The appeals process is governed by different legislation. Once received, your Bromley PCN challenge will be logged, and your case timeline will be halted until a determination is made. You will be notified either way, and you may be allowed to appeal again if you disagree with the findings via the Environmental and Traffic Adjudicators.

Not Paying or Late Paying Your Bromley PCN Could Result in Much Worse

Whether you decide to pay or dispute your Bromley PCN, choose one next step quickly. Not paying at all or waiting too long to pay could end up more costly for you. Neglecting payment could result in:

  • Penalty points added to your licence
  • Doubling of fine totals
  • An order for a court appearance
  • Bailiff's taking your property
  • Decreased credit ratings
